Marabou Ranch – a premiere luxury ranch offering picturesque Steamboat views – offers world-class fly fishing on more than two miles of private waters on Colorado's renowned Elk River.

Marabou Ranch owners can also enjoy 10 still-water fisheries known for trophy trout fishing and access to more than 100-miles of private and public Northwestern Colorado water.

"Our home waters are really awesome, teeming with a variety of rainbow trout, brown trout and cutbows," said Pat Stefanek, Marabou Ranch's Master Fly Fishing Guide. "Marabou Ranch is the perfect place for a family to learn how to fly fish because the conditions are so incredible and the views are so gorgeous."

The Marabou Ranch Outfitters Cabin provides all of the gear necessary for fishermen to get on the river and a staff of four local Master Guides to share their expert insights and guarantee an incredible experience.

A longtime Steamboat resident, Stefanek holds a degree in Fisheries and Wildlife from Michigan State University and is a licensed outfitter who has been guiding fishermen at Marabou Ranch for over a decade.

"What I enjoy most is the long-term relationships that we build with our owners - we can help you work on your cast and technique and truly help you become a better fisherman over time, which is really unique," said Stefanek. "Just last week we had a 10-year-old boy catch his first fish, he was so thrilled, his smile was infectious. I can't wait to work with him again and hopefully watch him grown into a serious fly fisherman."

Celebrating the authentic Western lifestyle, Marabou Ranch offers 1,717 acres of incredible ranch land located just five miles from the Colorado mountain town of Steamboat Springs.

Priced starting at $1.5 million, each homesite at Marabou Ranch is its own private refuge of at least five acres, all offering sweeping panoramas of Colorado's Yampa Valley, with views of rolling mountain meadows of sage and oak brush and the Elk River. Owners can design their dream mountain getaway, one that is ideal for boisterous family gatherings and quiet evenings on the porch basking in another spectacular Steamboat sunset.

Other amenities include the Downstream Spa, the zero-entry kid-friendly Rivers Edge Pool with two hot tubs and a Fitness Center with cardio machines, kinesis strength equipment and free weights. All owners at Marabou Ranch can enjoy four weeks of lodging each year at the Owners' Cabins, six luxuriously appointed retreats that are available for use only by property owners and their guests.

Marabou Ranch offers a wide variety of additional Steamboat Springs recreational opportunities, including 20 miles of equestrian, mountain biking and hiking trails. For hunters, Marabou Ranch is home to deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, waterfowl, sharp-tailed grouse and many other species of wildlife.

In the winter months, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the famous "Champagne Powder" at Steamboat Ski Resort. Marabou's Ranch offers a private Mountain Camp located at the base of Mount Werner next to Steamboat's main gondola, an ideal gathering place to gear up for the day with ski lockers featuring boot dryers.
